George Brett. Brooklyn Dodgers. Bob Gibson. Stargell & McCovey. Boston Red Sox.

1993. George Brett says goodbye to both the Royals and Kauffman Stadium after his illustrious 21 year playing career.

.

Such a great photo of Pee Wee Reese and Don Zimmer of the Brooklyn Dodgers in which they show their appreciation for the “Keep The Dodgers in Brooklyn” campaign.

I came across this photo while searching for a “Keep The Dodgers in Brooklyn” button or shirt. I found it on THIS site which is reproducing the exact shirt in the photo above. The shirts are a little pricey but I think the inner Baseball geek inside me will validate spending that much somehow.

.

Bob Gibson, Spring Training of 1975. This photo makes me feel a little uncomfortable. I am so conditioned to seeing Gibson during his playing days as an dominating force without many weaknesses that finding this was almost shocking as it captures a fading star in the twilight of his career.

.

No big deal, it’s just Willie Stargell and Willie McCovey hanging out in a dugout together. I love this photo of these Hall of Fame sluggers.

.

Ted Williams, Bobby Doerr, and Dom DiMaggio of the Boston Red Sox. I wonder if Ted Williams is looking at video footage of one of his at-bats? If so that would further validate every comparison between himself and Tony Gwynn. This is because Gwynn was known as “Captain Video” due to his pioneering of making video analysis a regular practice in modern Baseball.

Oh yeah, this photo is awesome as it has 3 of my favorite Red Sox players of all time who just happen to be 3 of my favorite PCL players also.

  1. Pretty sure I want that Stargell/McCovey photo as a life size poster in my room.

  2. I have some Stargell stuff…family friend. Grandfather Jesse Gonder played with him. JaseTurner.wordpress.com

  3. Great photos!

  4. Just finished up Teammates. Didn’t see that shot of Dom, Bobby and Ted in the book. Great find.

    Great page…keep it up.

  5. Almost impossible to overstate the sheer coolness of that shot of the two Willies.
